Worm leaked through

As you might all have guessed, the recent worm mail used a faked From
address which happens to be allowed to post to gnupg announce.

Given that those worms are getting smarter and smarter in selecting
address combination, we will have to implement stronger authentication
checks to Mailman.

Sorry for the trouble
